Richard Fleischer, director of such films as The Boston Strangler, Tora! Tora! Tora! and Soylent Green died on Saturday of natural causes at the age of 89. His other works also include the highly controversial Mandingo, Mr. Majestyk and the gripping police drama The New Centurions (one of my personal favorites).

Not many of the old school  filmmakers left...He will be missed. :'(
